Casuistor uses Tumblr to rant regarding realism in Death Note. Then occasionally dives into a subject armed with calculators, text-books and (one would presume judging by the narrative) some kind of medical qualification.
I'm a mere First Aid at Work certificate holder, and I was nodding away at the sheer blatant idiocy in some canon goofs pointed out here. Casuistor goes much, much further. The writer not only highlights what couldn't possibly have occurred as per plot, but explains what would have happened instead.

Which is pretty much how I found the first of these analyses on Death Note.
